Visiting restrictions extended at Reayrt-Ny-Baie nursing home

Rules to be kept in place for another week

Visiting restrictions at a nursing home in Douglas have been extended for another week.

Reayrt-ny-Baie was affected by an outbreak of Covid-19 in July and has had measures in place since.

Restrictions at care homes across the Island were eased at the end of August however rules at Reayrt-ny-Baie were tighter.

Only pre-arranged, 15 minute, visits between the hours of 11am and 4pm are allowed.

People must also complete a Lateral Flow Test before attending and follow PPE and hygiene rules when at the home.

Residents, meanwhile, are advised to only leave the home if they need urgent or emergency medical attention.

These rules, Manx Care says, will be in place until at least 14 September, when restrictions on all Island care homes will be reviewed.
